Sigil Find Replace Function

Does the built in Find Replace have a fuzzy search? I tried *, like ending with * and that doesn't work. I would guess that this is what regex is for. If regex is the thing to be using I'd ask where to start.

There's an introduction to Regex in the Sigil User Guide. Find it through the Help menu in Sigil, or directly at https://github.com/Sigil-Ebook/sigil...tag/2019.09.03

Regex is really amazing. It saved me like a month of doing monotonous stuff. The stuff I'm doing is heavy editing work and the bible alone is like 1,200 chapters. That's not fun to edit.

Thanks for the help.

And https://regexr.com/ is really useful for building and testing expressions, once you know the basics.
